assad, that will seem like forever. mr. obama will be embarrassed throughout the world. the bad guys overseas will see him as weak and his opponents within the u.s.a. will step up their attacks on him. and so ironically, a vicious attack in syria now has extreme global implications. russia, iran, al qaeda, and every other subversive group gain power. america, britain, france, nato and those who are supposed to be the keepers of civilization lose power. this happened once before, in the 1930s, and now it's happening again. syria is much more than poison gas and bashar assad. it is about the struggle for decency and justice in this world. and that's the memo. tonight, we will devote the entire program to syria. first up brit hume. later on williams, goldberg and rove. the factor will be right back. >> bill: if the impact segment tonight, looks very bleak for president congress. just 26 members of the house are committed to military action. 24 in the senate. that's a disaster. at this point i think the president is going to lose if the vote in congress is even held. now harry reid says

, you've got to have a political transition. it is not possible for mr. assad to regain legitimacy in a current where he's killed thousands of his own people. so far mr. putin has rejected that logic. as far as security council action, we have gone repeatedly to the security council for even the most modest of resolutions condemning some of the actions that have taken place there, and it has been resisted by russia. and do i hold out hope that mr. putin may change his position on some of these issues? i'm always hopeful. and i will continue to engage him. because i think that international action will be much more effective and ultimately we can end deaths much more rapidly if russia takes a different approach to these problems. in terms of my decision to take the issue to congress, this had been brewing in my mind for a while. some people had noted, and i think this is true, that had i been in the senate, in the midst of this period, i probably would have suggested to a democratic or republican president that congress should have the ability to weigh in on an issue like this. that
